Good day. I feel a little funny doing this; posting my thoughts on the internet. I thought this over a long while. Did I want to risk someone reading something that they shouldn’t? What would I write about? Would anyone actually read this? Did it matter?
So I came to the decision that I would do this; I would create my own blog. The easy way of solving my first question is: don’t post anything you don’t want read. Simple
I will write about what interests me and what I want to discuss, but need a forum. Right now that is mostly books. I read a lot. Seriously. I keep finishing these fine (and some not so fine) works of fiction, etc. Then I want to talk about them. I want to get my feelings and reactions out. I want responses too. I want someone to say, ‘I agree’ or ‘I disagree’ with a little umph behind it. This blog is going to be my outlet. If no one reads it, that’s okay. Though, I would like at least someone to find this helpful or engaging. But if not, I can live with that. I’m not sure what else I’ll include… likely my own rants on politics, current events, maybe even fashion. We’ll just have to see what the future brings.
Picking a good day to start this was/is important to me. I like creating special occasions and making existing ones even more memorable. Today is the 9th of July, 2006. Yesterday was my parents’ 28th wedding anniversary. Yesterday was also, coincidently, the day of my bachelorette party. Last night, I celebrated the upcoming end of my singledom, on the anniversary of the day my parents ended theirs. It just worked out that way. I had chosen the 8th, because it represented both beginnings and ends. However, I was a little busier than I though last night….
I am full of opinions and observations… I have much to say, but I like to think I can be concise… How concise what this first post? Oy!
Thank you for visiting.
